I have to agree. I also have a MacBook. I get frustrated waiting to launch to go on the net etc and most times. I often turn to the iPad. Since buying the iPad I now only use the MacBook maybe once every 2 weeks mainly to transfer songs etc.
My personal opinion is that most people purchasing computers, and i mean home users not gamers or professionals for some reason believe they must have intel core 2 500gb hard drive 4 gb ram and a fast video card just to do basic stuff
Yet all they want to do is get email and surf the web. It seems they live in a box. From my perspective the Mac book air along with the iPad is perfect for doing mobile computing I really love the instant on and great battery life
